Both Lara and Trout were robbed against Canelo. That's why I think GGG KO him if he moves up at 160.

Lara and Trout out landed him in their fights.

I don't think Lara was robbed against Canelo. I had it as a draw as I don't think neither did enough to decisively win.

If we're going off stats, Lara only landed about 10 punches more and he threw mostly jabs.

The fight was so hard to score because lara was running. And nelo was not hitting lara in that fight.

"Both Mauricio Herrera, and Timothy Bradley were robbed tonight. A sad day for boxing. Bob Arum is really the reincarnation of Satan."

There's been some horrendous judging the past few nights of fights. HBO was a sham tonight outside of the only fight that ended in KO.

Khan has looked great his past few fights after moving up in weight. Still wonder about his chin though, he hasn't been in with a big puncher at 147 yet.

Keith Thurman is another over-hyped B class fighter just waiting to be exposed.

I thought it was a pretty even fight. Bradley defiantly won at least 6 rounds. He lost a few for sure and the other 3 or 4 were even. If all the judges had it scored 114-114 then I would slightly disagree in favor of Bradley but I could accept it. But to say he lost 8 rounds is just stupid. I'm more upset about how they came to the draw rather then the actual decision.

Bundu have solid chin. I think Thurman might give a very tough fight for Pacquiao, Mayweather, and I picked him to beat the current Bradley. Thurman stopped Chaves in the 10th round last year.

that doesn't mean anything. bradley is not a knockout puncher and chaves is no way near the boxer bradley is. that's like saying pacquiao would easily dominate mayweather based on the hatton, dela hoya, mosley, cotto fights.

Khan and THurman need to fight next. Winner gets Floyd in September, after Manny.

I thought Lara did a little more, but this is fair. Canelo hit him with a lot of power body shots, but I thought Lara outboxed him overall.
